Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

גָּזַל fut. יִגְזֹל (kindred to גָּזַר).

(1) prop. to strip off, as skin from flesh, to flay, Micah 3:2. (Arab. جَزِلَ to be galled and wounded, used of a beast of burden, gefchunden fehn.) Hence

(2) to pluck off, or away, like Syr. transp. ܓܠܰܙ

(a) by open force, 2 Samuel 23:21, וַיִּגְזֹל אֶת־הַחֲנִית מִיַּד הַמִּצְרִי “he plucked the spear from the hand of the Egyptian;” 1 Chronicles 11:23; Job 24:9, “they pluck the orphan from the mother’s breast;” Genesis 31:31. “I feared lest thou wouldst take thy daughters away from me,” Deuteronomy 28:31. Used of the carrying off of women, Judges 21:23. In an applied sense, Job 24:19, צִיָּה גַם־חֹם יִגְזְלוּ מֵימֵי־שֶׁלֶג “drought and heat take away the snow water,” i.e. they absorb, drink up. It is more often used

(b) of one who takes to himself, claims for himself (an fich reiben) the goods of another by injustice of any kind, Job 20:19, 24:2 Micah 2:2 especially used of the more powerful who takes for himself the goods of the weaker, whether by violence or by fraud, Levit. 5:23 Jeremiah 21:12, 22:3.

(3) with acc. of person, to despoil any one

(a) properly, Judges 9:25; Psalms 35:10.

(b) by fraud and injustice, i.q. עָשַׁק. Leviticus 19:13; Proverbs 22:22, 28:24. Part. pass. גָּזוּל Deuteronomy 28:29.

Niphal pass. to be taken away, used of sleep, Proverbs 4:16.

[The derivatives follow presently.]

II

גָּזַל an unused root, i.q. Arab. جزل to chirp, to coo, of a dove. Hence גֹּוזָל.
